Innovative, thought-provoking and not just another `how to' guide, this book is a journey through the experiences of a skilled facilitator. It explains the role of the `facilitator', as opposed to instructor or trainer, and illustrates the advantages of adopting this method and how training changes when facilitation is used. It also offers encouragement and suggestions for what the facilitator can do to develop their training abitlities. A workshop run by the author is used throughout the book to show the skills necessary to act as a successful facilitator. This brings the book alive and shows how the trainer or `facilitator' can use situations to empower the progress of the group, whatever subject or skill they are learning.
